It all just kind of comes down to fancy ways to make a sandwich. just a different name. In fact, there are at least 13 different names for a sandwich in the USA. The most recognizable Po’ boys are made with Roast Beef, Shrimp or oysters. However there seems to be limitless types of ways to make the sandwich. The one in the picture is a combination of shrimp and roast beef in gravy. Parkway Bakery and Tavern in Mid-City may lack in character of their establishment (plastic tables stretched across a concrete patio area) but more than make up for it in flavor. It appears to be a fan-favorite among residents in New Orleans.
